A bathroom of substance always has a bathtub as a centrepiece and this doesn’t have to be lost even if you are working with a small space. At just 1540mm in length, our small Winchester single ended slipper bath can bring elegance to any bathroom and attracts plenty of attention as you enter the room.


Of course, some people use a smaller space to make the most of the convenience that a shower can offer, so basing your new room around a [luxurious shower cabin]https://victoriaplum.com/browse/shower-cabins) can be a great choice.

A small space is also a great opportunity if you want to build a small “wet room” and our range of walk in showers can be a great way to start off in that direction.

Making a small bathroom appear bigger can be done effectively with a few tried and tested tips and tricks. Light colours for wall and floor tiles can help, and the way that you use your lighting is can be key. If your room doesn’t have any natural light from outside, using full spectrum bulbs (which best replicate natural light) can help make the room feel less enclosed.

For a room with a low ceiling, vertical stripes on the walls are a great way to create the impression of height but consider keeping this to a feature wall. Uplighting can also help form the illusion of a taller room.


The less space you have the more storage becomes an issue. The number of small things that clutter our bathrooms can be amazing, so make sure you have a bathroom cabinet that is practical, like the small Sienna Autograph white gloss combination vanity unit. This not only offers a great storage solution but also gives a clean, modern high-gloss finish, which helps make everything feel bigger and more spacious.
